We've been privately testing a new version of the BYOND pager for the last few months. Many, many thanks to those involved. It's now ready for a brief (hopefully) public testing period, so if you want to give it a try, just download from the latest post in this thread (which we'll update with new releases). We are providing the ZIP version here so it won't conflict with your official BYOND install-- just unzip it on your desktop (or wherever) and run the included byond.exe from there.
This is a far superior product to the current pager. Most notably, it has numerous ways to find games (previously only accessible from the website). It also has a much improved messaging system. The downside (if you want to look at it that way) is that the pager runs some ads, which we desperately need for revenue. BYOND Members can disable these. An interstitial (video) commercial will run when you connect to a game, at most once every five minutes.
Please let us know of any issues you have in the Beta Bugs forum immediately below this one. If you have comments or suggestions for this new software, feel free to use this forum to relay them.
